Monday 2nd December 2019

Here we are it’s Monday. Get revved.

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot: £50. Cheat: Missy Elliot (music round)

7pm – Portobello Tap. Jackpot: £90. Cheat: Gregor Mendel (pic round)

9pm – Argyle Bar Jackpot £30. Cheat news: Moloko (music round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £30. Cheat news: Deep Impact (pic round)

So the £200 went at the Brass Leith last Monday but Crazy Martin’s investment at the Strathie was NOT scooped so we are left with £210 there on Thursday.

In the meantime the largest jackpot tonight is Kerry’s £90 at the Portobello Tape. It’s also worth noting that Portobello has been voted greatest place in the Universe, so there’s an extra reason to go and ride the seaside buzz.

Cheats

Here are the music round cheats for tonight

The first is for the Brass Monkey Leith:

It’s got accordion in it so it’s OK by me

Video is notable for a moment just after the two minute make in which Missy Elliot spits and a nearby man swallows.

Nasty!

Meanwhile, the music round free answer for the Argyle is by Moloko:

costume disaster, but nice tune

Roisin Murphy’s outfit in this is well dodgy.

Twenties flapper? Made out of mirror shards? Certainly doesn’t look comfortable. I would go as far as saying it looks dangerous.

Luckily The song is unaffected – it still sounds cool.

Dead Pool update: no one had Clive James for November. So he passes without a celebration million quid. Sad.

I just updated the December entries and someone wrote him down for December only for him to die in November. Bad luck there!

See you tonight.

Monday 9th September 2019

Pub Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot: £150. Cheat: Noel Coward (pic round)

7pm – Portobello Tap. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Benedict The Sixteenth (pic round)

9pm – Argyle Bar Jackpot £30. Cheat news: Ingrid Michaelson (music round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £60. Cheat news: Chvrches (music round)

Cheats

Here are the music round cheats for tonight

The first is for the Argyle:

Goys and Birls

This is a tribute and/or take-down of the Robert Palmer video for ‘Addicted To Love’ which was a hit in the 80s

It’s to do with genders and things.

Meanwhile the Safari Lounge music round will contain this:

An empty experience

This pop video has an empty style.

It feels less like a work of musical art and more like a commercial for a new phone which has many minutes and lots of giga-things.

In fact it’s basically one special effect repeated, and I have no problem declaring this the laziest pop video I have seen for ages.

That’s an official award but there is no trophy so don’t be hassling me for one, Chvrches.

And why the V instead of the U? The whole thing is laden with affectation. When they hit 20 years old they”ll look back and think – “Jings – we were wanks”. We all do.

Anyway – come and join the grown-up sensation that is pub quiz tonight and feel the mighty pulse inside that only winning cash money in the pub can bring.

Ooh yeah.

See ya later – x

Blimey. It’s September

Pub Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot: £100. Cheat: Kasabian (music round)

7pm – Portobello Tap. Jackpot: £120. Cheat: Andrew Gold (music round)

9pm – Argyle Bar Jackpot £150. Cheat news: Renault Clio (pic round)

Four Rollover Monday

Four rollovers last Monday. I think that’s the first time that’s happened.

The result is decent jackpots everywhere tonight.

Best are both Kerry’s:£120 at: The Portobello Tap at 7pm and top pot is £150 at The Argyle Bar at 9pm .

BURGER QUALITY REMINDER: The Portobello Tap’s burgers are so good that they SOLD OUT LAST WEEK. Popular!

Cheats

Here are the music round cheats for tonight

The first is for the Brass Leith:

Misery

It’s Kasabian, who I think from a brief glance at the video, are robbing a bank with guitars. Aye. Very good.

And the music round cheat for the Portobello Tap is this:

Tedious

Wow. That’s nothing but a super-solid mega-gold seventies classic pop banger.

Andrew Gold? I don’t know what happened to him but when he dies, they’ll play this.

Having now taken a few moments to look him up, I recall that he also did ‘Lonely Boy’ and ‘Thank You For Being A Friend’ – both middle of the road heavyweight bombs, if there is such a thing.

Gold legend. Gold leader. And he looks a bit skinny, not a feeder.

I need to go out to the bank and the post office so I’m out of time here. I’m going to post this straight up and hope to see you tonight.

See ya later – x

Mon 10th December – Quizzes Tonight In Edinburgh

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: Twickenham (pic round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £60. Cheat news: Katy B (music round)

Monday smells and it smells like victory.

Come to the quiz.

Now, here’s the reward for reading this post:  a free answer for tonight’s music round at the Safari Lounge.

I haven’t listened more than once or twice but I think there’s not much lyrical content: I think it’s about going out and getting wasted.

Music in it is excellent though, even though it is “very modern” in my book.

Not that modern, however, it you iz youtz.

The youtube comments are full of young people saying things like  “whooooooooaaaa – I can’t believe this is five years old”. and “I feel so old” and “music isn’t like this anymore”.

Fuck off kids, I’m old enough to remember Mike Read banning ‘Relax’ while simultaneously giving Bruno Brookes a rather hypocritical reach-around and calling Matt Bianco wankers, live on Swap Shop.

That’s real nostalgia.

This #penguinmonday might be the last. Look at the scabby state of this one.

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: Janet Jackson (music round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £30. Cheat news: Vulture (pic round)

How is your November going? For me it’s as smooth as Lionel Richie drinking a Horlicks-themed milkshake on a maglev. That’s smooth.

Come and join the smooth-party tonight at the quiz. Mmmmm, sweet.

By the way, the music cheat is for the Brass Monkey Leith tonight and it is Janet Jackson and it sounds like this:

Of course, Monday means you have to watch out for penguins:

They could be literally anywhere. Have you spotted any today?

Monday Edinburgh Pub Quiz Action

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: Little Miss Somersault (pic round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £30. Cheat news: B-52s (music round)

Right – I know I’ve screwed this up twice already this month but tonight’s music round at the Safari DEFINITELY INCLUDES The B-52s:

The song is called ‘Butter Bean’ and doesn’t start in this video until 8’35” but I’ve linked to this video so you can see a couple of their other songs. They really are the greatest band in pop history.

I could give you some long explanation about how I got this totally wrong on two separate occasions but that would be tedious. It’s got something to do with shelves and months. I’ll leave it at that.

Anyway, come to the quiz, especially the Safari cos its always a bit quieter there which is a shame cos its an ace boozer.

##########################

Remember: tonight’s pub quizzes are located less than a mile apart. You could, feasibly, do the double (and people do).

First one at the Brass Leith finishes at 8.30pm and the second one at the Safari Lounge begins at 9pm (although I don’t usually hit the first question until about 10 past or quarter past)

I might be on the bike tonight but if I’m getting a taxi  I’m always happy to give you a lift between the two places. Free of charge!

Monday Night Pub Quiz

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: Edelweiss (pic round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £30. Cheat news: Brian May (music round)

Fringe finished. I think it might be the fireworks tonight so quiz may be quiet – but hopefully I’ll see you in the nice cosy pub where everyone is your friend. Hopefully you’ll see the wisdom in attending the quiz instead of taking your chances with the sea of hooligans and wanks that populate these large outdoor events. And it might rain.

Mmmmm, quiz.

Mind you, if you do eschew the quiz tonight, you won’t have to listen to the fifteen second clip of this absolute steamer that’s in the Safari Lounge music round tonight.

Amazingly, all the youtube comments say they love it. But I remember it being an advert to sell Ford Escorts. Tainted.

Occasionally, May turns up in Dead Pool. It’s the last few days of August so I am collecting names for September. Get your entry in tonight.

Remember: tonight’s pub quizzes are located less than a mile apart. You could, feasibly, do the double.

First one at the Brass Leith finishes at 8.30pm and the second one at the Safari Lounge begins at 9pm (although I don’t usually hit the first question until about 10 past or quarter past)

Monday Night Pub Quiz Edinburgh

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£150. Cheat: Thailand (pic round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £60. Cheat news: Black Rebel Motorcycle Club (music round)

A hundred and fifty quid? You could get a new kitchen for that probably, I don’t know, I’m not really in the market for kitchens.

Here’s the cheat source for Safari:

This is the straightest white man rock and roll possible. The sort of band that people like when they’re terminally afraid of showing any love for Eurovision pop just in case they catch the gay.

Doesn’t make the tune bad though, it’s nice. Good rock and roll. But don’t forget to bop to the pop too.

Rock makes you strong. But pop makes you great.

By the way 2018 deck of Cunto Cards are back in stock so stop me and buy one if you want to get in on the action.

Why Is Phil Collins “The Beast” Anyway?

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£100. Cheat: Depeche Mode (music round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £30. Cheat news: Phil Collins (pic round)

Hey! A hundred quid at the Brass Monkey on Leith Walk tonight. Come and win.

Cheat piece for the music round at the Brass Leith tonight, it’s Depeche Mode:

I grew up listening to Depeche Mode and was always pretty sure this song is about either class, control or BDSM, I’ve never been quite sure which. This is the first time I’ve ever seen the video and it does nothing at all to clear things up.

I guess it’s about all three. Didn’t expect to see Greenham Common in there though…

So why is Phil Collins (star of tonight’s Safari Lounge picture round) known as THE BEAST?

Well, it’s a list of alleged crimes which include but are not limited to:

  • Taking all the money from Live Aid, thus…
  • Ensuring that Africa still starves to this day.
  • Divorcing second wife BY FAX.
  • Controlling the world’s tsunamis from his underwater headquarters in a lake in Switzerland.
  • Riding his bike through red lights.
  • Conducting a covert war against the poor of the Brazilian favelas using his own private security force.
  • Murdering orphans
  • Created Ebola virus in his Swiss lab
  • etc

What a bastard. In fact even if half of these things are true, it would still make him a Cunto, and that explains why he’s in the 2018 deck of Cunto Cards.
